Tesla fan uses himself to compare the size of the Model Y against the rest of Tesla’s lineup

It certainly is a creative way to get a pretty good comparison in size of Tesla’s Model Y. Jason Yu recently found himself face-to-face with a Model Y in Daly City, California, and decided to get a photo standing next to the electric crossover.

He then took it a few steps further, finding a Model X, Model S, and Model 3 to get similar photos to show just how large the Model Y is compared to Tesla’s other vehicles.

Yu claims to be 5ft7in (170cm) tall. The shoes he has on, which are the same in all three photos, adds an additional 0.75″.

In his photo with the Model X, which is Tesla’s largest vehicle at 66.3in (168.4cm) high, the Model Y is slightly shorter, but not by much. We’ve seen estimations before that put the height of the Model Y at 65.4in. Click the images below to enlarge.

The other comparisons with the Model S and Model 3 show just how large the Model Y actually is. The rooflines in both photos show the Model S and Model 3 slightly below Yu’s shoulders. Both measure in at 56.8in (144cm). The Model Y easily clears his shoulders, showing how much difference the roughly 8-9in makes.

Despite this extra height, it still remains to be seen if Tesla will be able to implement the optional third row, which is supposed to provide seating for 7. With deliveries expected this month, we’ll be getting a much better picture of just how much head room there is in the Model Y.
